WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - July 15, 2016) - Kerri Hoffner began her embroidery career out of her home in 2004. DAP Designs, as it used to be called, stood for Digital, Advertised and Personalized and was run by Kerri and her husband, who handled the bookkeeping for their home business. In 2011, DAP Designs began to outgrow their home, resulting in Hoffner signing up for a business course at Decatur-Morgan County Entrepreneurial Center, a local organization in Decatur that focuses on the successful start-up and continued growth of new businesses in Morgan County, Alabama. It was here that Hoffner met Bill Pensworth, co-owner of four Batteries Plus Bulbs franchise locations in the Decatur area.
Hoffner quickly learned the benefits of being a franchise location owner from Pensworth. Name recognition, training and support, services and access to product suppliers all appealed to Hoffner. She decided that in order for her embroidery business to achieve that level of success, a franchise was the best way to receive the support and resources she would need.
Hoffner reached out to EmbroidMe, the well-known custom embroidery franchise organization headquartered in South Florida, and opened her franchise location in Decatur later in 2011. The store has been running successfully for the past five years, greatly excelling earlier this year. The store grossed over $130,000 worth of sales in April alone, compared to $54,000 in February. Hoffner's sales in April totaled more than any other EmbroidMe location.
"Our entire EmbroidMe team is very proud of the Hoffners' accomplishments," said Christine Marion, director of retail sales and operations for EmbroidMe. "Our organization's greatest assets are each and every one of our franchisees, and we strive to provide all of them with the tools to reach this level of success."
